Member Since
September 2013


Stephanie Elmas was born in Hong Kong to an English father and Czech mother but spent most of her childhood in Bristol. She studied English at university in London. She has worked as a head hunter, taught English in Japan and returned to university to complete a Masters in Victorian fiction. It was here that she developed her interest in the dark dangerous world of Victorian sensation writing. Stephanie now lives in a chaotic house in Surrey with her husband and three highly energetic but wonderful children.


Well I did my first audio podcast recording the other week for The Indie Author Helpdesk. It's all about the ups and downs of being an indie author. Thanks to Chris Bell for all his support. Here it is:

The Room Beyond by Stephanie Elmas
"A really intriguing concept that pans out into a page turning and exciting story. I was desperate to unravel the mystery of the characters and their residence. Look forward to more from this promising author. "
The Room Beyond by Stephanie Elmas
"Had me hooked, many a late night reading. Personally getting tired of the back and forth- past present books, but the author did a good job overall. The ending was a bit confusing.. Eva, Seb??"
The Room Beyond by Stephanie Elmas

I had trouble putting it down. I found it fascinating and atmospheric and well-written."

“Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being "in love", which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”
Shawn Slovo, Captain Corelli's Mandolin

Elizabeth Jane Howard
“A rainy day is like a lovely gift -- you can sleep late and not feel guilty.”
Elizabeth Jane Howard, Mr. Wrong

Oscar Wilde
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan

Anaïs Nin
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Anais Nin

“Faith consists in believing what reason cannot.”
